My Encounter with Shingles
6 days ago
Adam Gopnik reflects on why he turned to marijuana to relieve his pain during a recent bout of shingles.
His 17 year old daughter was horrified.
But Adam concludes that wise drug policy accepts the existence of intoxicants and says "this tale of unshaven debauchery" has made him realise, for the first time, how much his own "hyper disciplined, driven life" had taken out of him.

a nail on a head
Return of a 1970's sexual zeitgeist. The ludicrous and rigidly feigned morality of the
conservatives today could unscrew their faces once and get a clue. Everyone does
what they want without regard to national political agendas.
